The Tiger of Mysore: Tipu Sultan and the Decorative Arts Talk with Ann Buddle

Anne Buddle, Head of Exhibitions and Collections Management at the National Galleries of Scotland sheds new light on Tipu Sultan


Anne Buddle, Head of Exhibitions and Collections Management at the National Galleries of Scotland sheds new light on Tipu Sultan (1750–1799) and his father, Haidar Ali, famous for their military strategies and skills in the four Mysore Wars, have long been familiar to historians. Buddle challenges Tipu’s traditional reputation as a cruel tyrant, recogising his patronage of the arts. Tipu’s use of tiger motifs, especially the stylised tiger stripe or bubri, was symbolic and political, but also remarkably varied and creative. Tipu’s decorative arts, notably his tigers round the throne, are a unique legacy and one which now excites considerable interest in Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
